Real-Time GPS Data

UNAVCO publicly broadcasts real-time streaming GNSS/GPS (RT-GNSS) data from some stations in the Network of the Americas (NOTA), a network comprised of stations formerly part of the PBO, COCONet, and TLALOCNet networks. Realtime 1-Hz streams from these selected stations are available in both BINEX and RTCM (versions 2.3 and 3.1) formats via the Networked Transport of RTCM via Internet Protocol (NTrip).

BINEX is an open-source binary format that contains both standard GPS observable data and other metadata and data timeseries from the receiver. Streaming BINEX data can be translated to RINEX in real time using UNAVCO's teqc utility. The various RTCM formats are typically less comprehensive than BINEX, but RTCM is more common and is translated by most NTripClient software.

See our network monitoring map of real-time station locations.
